News Ford Mustang Mach-E Might Not Be As Efficient As Promised

Ford Mustang Mach-E Might Not Be As Efficient As Promised


  • Ford Mustang Mach-E Might Not Be As Efficient As Promised

  • Information is based on EPA Emissions Certifications.

  • The targeted range for the RWD extended-range Mach-E was 300 miles.


Range anxiety, for EV owners, is in the past. Despite this, range remains one of the most important specifications for an EV. Newfound information seems to indicate that the hotly-anticipated Ford Mustang Mach-E might not reach its posted range projections.

Perhaps what is oddest in this story is that even EVs have an emissions certification that’s posted by the EPA. As reported by InsideEVs, recently discovered documents and information on the Mach-E’s reveal details on its potential EPA range ratings.

The EPA emissions certification documents indicate unadjusted range ratings. From the source story: “It’s important to note that the data on the certification is “unadjusted city/UDDS and highway/HWFET.” While UDDS stands for Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule, HWFET specifics Highway Fuel Economy Test.”

In order to arrive at 249.8 miles of range (compared to the posted 270 miles) for the AWD Extended-Range Mach-E, the person responsible for the discovery had to complete some quick calculations. The same goes for the RWD extended-range Mustang Mach-E which, according to the math, will deliver 288 miles or range instead of 300 miles.

Ford responded to insideevs stating that they expect official EPA numbers will meet targets and that they’ll have more to share later this month.
